Do You Keep Your Phone On Silent Mode Most Of The Time?
February 17, 2018 9:41am CST
I can understand that at times you keep you phone on silent for obvious reasons, but most of the time that's not acceptable. Anytime I call up my sister she never picks up at the first ring, that really gets me irritated At times I have urgently to talk to her and what her phone is on silent Same with my younger brother, my mother does not have a cellphone so when I want to talk to her need to call my brother I have told them a thousand times what if there is an emergency, but its of no use Image Credit:- Pixabay.

I keep mine on mute even though only my sister knows the number as i would get telemarketers in middle of the night calling from Hawaii! I am not waking up at midnight to answer a call about which I could care less. I only do landline phones, and one can call me on there if there is an emergency though nobody calls me unless my sister hits my number by accident and realizes it and just has it ring once and then will email me it was a mistake. that was more common in the past but she doesn't do that anymore

@kavinitu Yes, when I am outside, I do keep it on ring. My dad, age 97, is just a few minutes from my home and my sister's home. We need have our phones on just in case of an emergency with Dad. We have other family here too, so it is always good to be alerted by phone if they need us.

I usually have it on while I’m away from home. When I go home and take my nap, I put it on “do not disturb” mode. Having said that, there are people I’ve listed as “favorites” who can circumvent the “do not disturb” feature and reach me any time of the day or night. My brother called me at 3:30 a.m. to tell me about our dad, but if someone else had called at that time my phone wouldn’t have buzzed. The bad thing about that is a lot of people think that “everyone” has that feature and will send a text or make a call at 2 AM so the receiver will get it “first thing in the morning”....and instead of going to voice mail, it wakes them up.

@kavinitu all calls I miss.... But still I prefer to have my cellphone on silent mode.. I always get scolded from papa and especially my siz that I don't pick her call.. And one of my friend too scold as I don't pick the call when they do I have to call back most of the time
